It is a common trait that people who get things done and have a great life, recognize the importance of other people. A key step to recognising the importance of others is using their name.

To learn something new requires that you change. It's only logical that if you keep doing the same thing you must get the same result. However, change can be hard.

This lecture set out the 7 key steps steps to follow when meeting someone to ensure that you will remember their name the next time you meet and well into the future.

We'll explore how your mind can perpetually reinforce a name so that it is with you forever. Your mind already does this. For example, what is the chance that you will ever forget the names of your parents or siblings.

The key to maintain motivation with learning is to keep it fun and focus on what you really want.

When learning something new focus on learning the habit of the new process first. That should be your sole aim at the start. Do the behaviours. If you get it right or wrong doesn't matter at this point. Do the behaviours. Then when the behaviours become automatic, when you are just doing them as part of your everyday life, then switch to improving your hit rate.

In the end if you don't swing you'll never get a hit. You need to make your goal at the start to practice the process of the skill your focus. Congratulate yourself that you did the process regardless of if you got it right or wrong. You'll feel good that you did the process. This way you will stay motivated and keep doing it. Then when you a swinging the bat regularly then switch your focus to how many balls you hit.

Learning this way you'll keep it fun for you and thus learn faster and enjoy it more.

Instructor Biography

Damian Andrews, Infinity Loop - Peak Performance Training

For over 25 years Damian Andrews has been a study of peak performance in human behaviour. In varying careers from the Defence Force to Marketing and TV to Accounting and Law to Construction to name a few, the skills of peak performance have been refined, honed and tuned on a perpetual continual improvement quest.

A full time career started at 18, leaving school and joining the Army for term of 4 years in which many personal limits were broken. Many of today’s corporate boot camp training experiences were part of daily life, from rock climbing, parachuting, submarines and physically pushing the body’s limits beyond what was believed could be achieved.

Down time was used to study under such teachers as Richard Bandler, Tony Robbins, Jim Rohn, Dr Wayne Dyer and others. These teachers laid the foundation of knowledge for future development.

After the Army, the next challenge was mining in remote North Western Australia. A barren land where temperatures could fluctuate from below zero to scorching heat in one day. However to keep people motivated, fit and healthy, Damian set out and ran physical training and mind awareness sessions at the camp site’s gym.

Returning home, formal university study was undertaken in the field of accounting and law. Shortly after commencement, employment with a corporate recovery firm was attained. This position involved the management of a variety of financially distressed companies requiring exceptional personnel management skills.

The next step was out on one’s own as an advisor providing commercial and management expertise. Fulfilling direct on the job engagements plus also presenting training on various topics, delivering knowledge in person to both small and large listed companies.
